I removed the boarder and bumped up the size of the motif and the copy just a bit. I'm thinking about submitting this with one of the die cut templates

Love the changes! It's so elegant now. And yes, this would be great with one of the diecuts!

Comments and suggestions are welcomed :) I'm not quite sold on the background, I'm afraid the checks are giving this too much of a country feel, but I don't want to do a solid background either. The design is inspired by the quilt in this photo

Hi, Ashley! What about making a repeat of the leafy design and using that as the background? Something maybe even the same size as the centerpiece design- it would just peek through on the borders.

Thanks Laura, I'll try the repeating pattern in the background and see if that's a better fit.

So soft and pretty. I don't know if this would work, but I'd be curious to see it with no border at all. That way the names would have plenty of space on either side, and the motif at the top would be the star. You could of course still use the pattern as the backer. Just a thought!

Pretty monogram! I'd really love to see the names stand out more. They are a bit hard to read right now.
